Hello, my name is Clayton Lilly and I am a java developer. I've been into making games as a hobby for a long time, and I've always been fascinated by games that use procedurally generated content. I released a game about a year ago for Android, and just recently ported it to Windows. It's a first person RPG set in a procedurally generated world. You can check it out at www.realmsoffortune.com.

Hey everyone,

Dropping my introduction here. You can call me Sam or h1ff. I've been playing games for over 25 years now. In the past year, I've started developing my own game - Galactic Council. It is a sci-fi deckbuilding/ccg type browser-based game that I have grand community-sourced visions for. I've been learning different aspects of software construction for just about 10 years now, so I'm really excited to be bringing my first game to the public.

So I'll list my big 3 favorites -
1. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
2. Super Metroid
3. Final Fantasy Tactics

Close 4th and 5th goes to D2: LOD and FFVII, of course. Glad to be posting here, I'm looking forward to further involving myself in the Indie Games scene.

Hey Hey,

My name’s Daniel and I publish games under the name Ruxar. I've been working on Windows Phone titles for the last year or two but have recently branched out to Android and fingers cross I should have my first game on Android in the next few days!

Hi everyone!

I'm Thomas, 25 years old, I'm Dutch and currently live in an apartment in The Hague together with my girlfriend (and 2 cats). I expect to graduate within 2 weeks from the 'International Game Architecture and Design' course here in the Netherlands.

In and outside of school I've worked on various games. Some time ago my team and I got an honorable mention in the student showcase category of IGF 2011 for 'EXP', trailer and download: http://thomaspathuis.com/EXP_minisite.html

I worked at Ronimo Games (http://ronimogames.com/), a dutch indie game dev, for almost a year doing a design internship and 'specialization phase' (writing a dissertation: 'Player & Difficulty Management'). I've worked on Awesomenauts (http://www.awesomenauts.com) and the DLC campaign 'Super Saucy Sausage Fest' for the previously released Swords & Soldiers: http://store.steampowered.com/app/210510/?l=english

For the past couple of months I have been working on a game by myself called RedplusBlue, I've posted a gameplay video and screenshot here: http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=32438.0
I'm also currently working on 2 other small games with different people, which hopefully will see the light of day very soon.

I'd consider myself mostly to be a designer and artist, but working on RedplusBlue has also made me confident enough to code a little. Hopefully I will be able to expand my coding experience and knowledge further with future projects.

My portfolio page is a little outdated but if you are interested have a look anyway: http://thomaspathuis.com/
I also play a little guitar and compose my own songs, I've put some online here: https://soundcloud.com/thomas-pathuis (Here you can also see a picture of me at a gig of the band I previously played bass for.)


I believe that covers most of it, but if you want to know anything else let me know!

Thomas

Hello! Newbie here!

My name is Alejandro Hitti. I'm from Venezuela, but I'm currently living in Redmond, WA. I'm studying at DigiPen, pursuing a major in Computer Science in Real-Time Interactive Simulation (fancy name for "Game Programmer"). Before I came to the US, I studied Computer Science at the Universidad Simon Bolivar in Venezuela for 4 years.

I first wanted to make videogames when I was around 9, but I've been playing videogames for longer than that, probably since I was 5 and had an SNES with games like Mario Kart, Krusty's Fun House, Donkey Kong Country 3 and Mortal Kombat (yeah, I know, M rated game when I was 5 xD).

Since then, I owned an N64, a PS1, PS2 (probably my favorite console of all time) and I currently own an Xbox360, but I've also had handhelds like the GameBoy Color, DS and 3Ds.
My favorite game genre is probably JRPG, as I own most of them, but I play almost any game except for maybe RTS games. I've played them before, but I don't fancy them much.

Anyway, enough background. Since I started programming, I've made games like Robots (Linux game), Breakout (hasn't everyone?) and small games like that. On my first semester at DigiPen, I made a game called "Spanks", which stands for Space Tanks, which is a worms-like game where you are trying to destroy your opponent. The catch though, is that you are in space and the arena is an asteroid field, where each asteroid has it's own gravity field that will pull bullets towards it. In order to hit the other player, you will need to make your shots bend around the asteroids. Here are some screenshots:











I'm currently working on another game called "The Afterworld Chronicle", which is a 2D action platformer with proceduraly generated levels. It's turning out great and me and my teammates hope we can make it to PaX13. Maybe I'll post some screenshots later Smiley

Nothing more to say I guess, I'm an aspiring game programmer with some game design emphasis as well as experience as a producer. I'm also learning how to sprite, but it's still just programmer art Smiley

I hope I can meet all of you and I will try to be an active member of the community Smiley

TL:DR = I'm Alejandro Hitti, a game programmer and game designer. I study at DigiPen and make games.

Why, hello everyone!

I'm Pedro Gabriel and I publish games under the name Pidroh.
I'm from Brasil, I mainly like JRPGs, I started making games when I was 11, 12, with RPG Maker.

I love programming and I can also scrap by on some art. Most of my games are for Android, but I have an Iphone title and some PC titles, but they are too amateurish. I'm trying to step up my game though, so I come here to interact and for feedback! My only really successful title has been Dragon Sky Rush for Android, which is a bit of a Dragon Ball Z parody-shooter.

My dreams are to be able to live only by making games and to make a game that can make a lot of people cry.

That is all!

I have played video games since before I could read, but have only just now gotten into trying to actually make them. Since I'm 24, I'm a bit of a late bloomer in that regard.

I plan to start with retro consoles (I have recently released a few games for the Atari 2600) and eventually move on to something newer. I hope to be able to come up with interesting game concepts and not fall into the trap of making pointless or tedious interactive "noise" just for the sake of making a game.

Hi, I'm Dustin, long time TIG Source reader, first time forum post...er.  I've been programming for about 13 years, developing/designing games for about 6 years, and playing games since my first computer.  (TRS-80 baby!)  I'm a graphic designer who became a programmer. (left brain vs right brain, fight!)  Over the years, I've made games for EA, Hasbro, Atari, name drop, name drop, Yawn, who cares.  Now, I want to be able to say I've made games for....me.  MadRuse Games is my indie game studio that me and a friend started.  Here is a game we are working on called Vortex: http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=32500.0

Hi everyone!
I'm Daniel and I am 22 years old. Currently I study Creative Computing in London which is where I live as well!

I got into games when my dad got me a SNES for my sixth birthday. My favourite games at the time were Zelda 3, Super Mario Bros., and Mario Kart, the obvious more or less. Smiley I am still a big fan of retro games today, but I enjoy modern games just as much. My current favourite is the new Tomb Raider, but I pretty much enjoy everything as long as it is Action Adventure or something related.

Programming has been one of my biggest hobbies for quiet a while now. I started with "The Game Maker" - a basic dialect when I was about eight and explored quiet a few other programming languages during my time now.

At the moment I am working on a project called Tales of Hymna (http://toh.stockerdesign.com) which is an RPG in the style of Zelda and want to present it here soon.

If you want to have a look at my previous projects, I would like to point you to my portfolio site. (http://www.stockerdesign.com)

Well I guess that's about all. Wink

Hi everyone,

I'm the designer of upcoming indie title called Prisonscape. Not many of you have probably heard of it (hipster!), but we've been doing development for a while now. Since I'm a bit lazy, I'll just copy my introduction from our website (www.prisonscape.com):

"My name is Pekka and I’m the game and story designer for Prisonscape. I’m currently working as a researcher at University of Tampere where I study multimodal user interfaces. When Tuomas asked if I wanted to get involved in creating games, I was immediately interested. I have a long history with roleplaying games both as a DM and a player. I want to study gaming platforms as a way to tell stories and create emotions. I’m also interested in creating dynamic worlds where the player’s actions matter and where decisions have different consequences.

I draw inspiration from movies, books, recordings, games and from day-to-day scenarios. I want to create realistic characters whose personalities are more in the shades of grey instead of black and white (good vs. evil) you traditionally see in RPGs."

I'm the guy in the back, and the other dude is Tuomas. He's the coder for Prisonscape.

Hi! I'm Bryan, I'm a full time software developer by day, mostly boring businessy stuff, but I've been dabbling in game development too off and on for a while now. I haven't finished anything worth bragging about yet, but hope to soon!

I'm looking forward to getting more involved in this community. 
Thanks!

Hey!

 I am Matouš Ježek from Brno, Czech Republic.
 I worked as designer in 2K Czech (Mafia II and couple other projects) for more than 4 years. Last summer I left the company to start something on my own. With few of my former collegues we started an indie project.

 My roots are in storytelling (worked on several pen and paper RPGs before). I love to work with narrative from many different angles and always trying to find ways how to deliver meningfull experiences through game interaction.

 Things got changed since there are no armies of artists and programmers producing my ideas, despite that I quite enjoy life of indie developer - I mean crafting game from bottom to top Smiley

 Don't hesitate to wisit my website, if you are interested.

 If something from my experience is useful to you guys, I will gladly share with the community.
 Cheers!
